One of the most important aspects of building a deck is getting the sub-frame right. Frames help the deck structure carry their required loads. If the frame is not level or square, other deck features such as furniture, barbecues and spas may be compromised. To build a great deck, you first need a solid sub-frame. That’s where NexGEN’s DeckCell sub-frame comes in. This exclusive product can make quick work of your next DIY decking project.
Building your own deck sub-frame with DeckCell will help you save thousands of dollars over the cost of contractor installed decking. Not only will you save time and money with this great DIY decking product, you can work on your own schedule instead of waiting for an opening in a contractor’s schedule to have the deck built.
The beauty of DIY decking DeckCell is that virtually anyone can put it together. Remember building with Legos when you were a kid? Using DeckCell is similar and it’s so much faster to install than traditional timber or steel sub-frames, so you’ll save time and ultimately enjoy your deck sooner. DeckCell for DIY decking is made of recycled polypropylene and resists chemicals and bacteria. It’s virtually indestructible because it will never rot. In addition, it’s so strong that you can easily drive a truck over it (if you so desire).
DeckCell is suitable as a DIY decking sub-frame over ground that is stable and level and may be used over compacted sand, concrete pads, brick pavers and similar material. At least 74 mm of vertical height is necessary. There are only 3 easy steps to DIY decking with NexGEN DeckCell:
- You simple click the DIY decking cells together to fit your desired area (you can easily trim where necessary)
- Insert the aluminium batten into the DeckCell at regular intervals
- Lay NexGEN decking onto the DeckCell and screw fixings down
